Funka is supporting regional innovation in Active and Healthy Ageing

If you are a Reference Site, you can receive up to € 5,000 to facilitate the deployment of large-scale innovative digitally-enabled solutions for health and care.

Funka as support organisation of the EIP on AHA is pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 Call for Twinnings Support Scheme. The objective is to facilitate the deployment of large-scale innovative digitally-enabled solutions for health and care delivery for older adults. This initiative therefore contributes to the European Scaling Up Strategy of the EIP on AHA and to the implementation of the priorities set out in the EC Communication on digital transformation of health and care in the Digital Single Market.

The twinning scheme aims to reduce any risks related to investing in innovative digital ICT solutions. It does so by financing the exchange of knowledge and good practice in digital health solutions that have a high potential for replicability and scaling up.

Applications to the scheme can be made through a joint request, submitted through a brief online form. The joint request should be filled in by the originator and adopting organisations. They should provide details on the content of the twinning action and outline their commitment to start implementing the innovative practice within the 2019-2020 timeframe. Deadline for submissions is 15th June 2019.

An independent panel made up of members of the WE4AHA project (led by Funka) and representatives from the European Commission will select up to five twinning actions. Funding will be awarded by 15th July 2019, one month after submissions are received.
